North American Biathlon Roller Ski Championships-Vermont

This weekend, the NorAm Biathlon Roller Ski Championships will be held in Jericho, VT at the Ethan Allen venue with a Sprint Race on Sat and a Mass Start/Pursuit Race on Sunday. From Minnesota 11 male and 6 female Biathletes will be competing including Jakob and Siena Ellingson, Vasek Cervenka, last season’s MN high school champ, Garrett Beckrich, Jake Brown, past State champ, Raleigh Goessling and Olympian, Leif Nordgren. All the participants entered by class can be found on this webpage:
The top competitors will ski on matched rollerskis provided by USBA. The course was recently rebuilt with new paving along with the range updates and is dedicated to roller skiing and biathlon. Located in the Green Mountains of Vermont, the same loops are used for winter competitions and meet the IBU course requirements.
Results will be posted at http://www.eabiathlon.org/.
The results from these races along with another roller ski series in Oct will be used by US Biathlon to name the team for the early IBU and World Cup races this coming winter.
The next event in MN will be at the Elk River range on Thursday the 23rd with 5:00 zero.
